I write. I cook. I read. I bake. I draw. I sing. I dance. I snap pictures. I laugh (a lot). I do stupid things. I make goofy jokes.
I love traveling alone to foreign lands and playing tourist in my hometown. I travel with notebooks and pens. The further or the longer I go, the more notebooks and pens I’ll carry with me. In the cities I visit, usually I will just stroll around listlessly, no destination in mind, while taking pictures of everything until I find places I like. These are the places where I will sit for hours: writing, drawing, painting, reading, daydreaming, talking to strangers, or watching the passers-by. I don’t mind skipping landmarks and tourist attractions, but I’ll be heartbroken shall I miss bookstores, coffee shops, or flea markets. I love to take pictures of plants, animals, doors, windows, and hanging laundries. On the plane, I’ll memorize how to say “I don’t have a boyfriend” or “I’m single” in local language.
When I turned 30, I decided to reset my life. I quit my job as a Creative Director in a respected communications consultancy where I advised blue-chip multinational clients, and stepped out of my comfort zone to live the life I have always wanted.
After struggling with planning (and pitching) my new way of life, today I have a comfortable 4-hour workweek and the flexibility to work from anywhere in the whole wide world–as long as there are Internet connections. I am also free to give myself the luxury of taking 3-month leave every year (time to unplug!).
I am a published writer, an independent creative communications consultant(+10 years experience), a blogger at beradadisini.com, the co-founder of online social movement @coinachance, the co-founder of an open-source walking tour @jktonfoot, a social entrepreneur, an international speaker/trainer on digital communications and fundraising (+250 hours speaking slots), a solo traveler, an occassional guest lecturer, and a seasonal photographer. I am definitely not apologizing for being a multi-passionate person! :)
With my 4-hour workweek, today I have more time in my role as a PlanPitchPlay Strategist to help people/brands who are excited to understand more about how they can plan, pitch, and play the kind of life & business they have always dreamed of.
